Chelsea hosts Manchester United tonight in the Carabao up fourth round at Stamford Bridge. The two sides already met in Premier League first fixture of the season, with the Red Devils securing a huge 4-0 win at Old Trafford.
Will Lampard's team be able to get their revenge and win their 8th game in a row?
The Blues are on a roll lately, coming to this match with 7 wins in a row in all competitions, and with some special results among them: two Champions League away wins at Lille and Amsterdam, which demonstrates that Lampard's team are producing exciting football with a team plagued by young talent. Players like Mount, Abraham, Tomori and Pulisic are performing really well and are delivering good signs for Chelsea's future. However, the Blues won only 2 out of 5 homes games in the Premier League, and tonight face a team that, despite having won just once away Old Trafford in the league, has a lot of talent and pace on the front. Lampard is expected to make some changes in the starting lineup, giving chances to players with lack of playing time.
Caballero; Azpilicueta, Zouma, Tomori, Emerson; Jorginho, Kovacic; Hudson-Odoi, Mount, Pulisic; Giroud
United began the season with a stunning 4-0 win over Chelsea but, from that point on, the team is showing lack of consistency in their performances. United only won three out of ten matches in the Premier League, and only won one game away form Old Trafford.
Solskjaer's team comes form a good week, as the team stopped the winning run of Liverpool in the Premier League by getting a 1-1 draw at Old Trafford, while also reaching is first victory away home against Norwich this weekend. For today's trip to Stamford Bridge, Pogba is still out, while 18-year-old midfielder James Garner was included in the squad.
Romero; Wan-Bissaka, Maguire, Lindelof, Brandon Williams; Fred, McTominay; Andreas Pereira, Lingard, Daniel James; Rashford
We expect an even match between the two English rivals, with Chelsea having the advantage of playing in front of their fans.
